Transparency concerning BEV battery condition
The traction battery is not only the most important, but also by far the most valuable component of a battery electric vehicle (BEV): it represents up to 50 percent of a BEV’s value – and therefore also of its residual value. However, it has so far remained the main uncertainty in the valuation of second-hand vehicles. That’s why many vehicle evaluators base their valuation on the battery’s worst-case condition. The result: the assessed residual value is often lower than the actual vehicle value.
We provide the first reliable workshop test for the battery state of health
During a short stop in the workshop, Battery Quick Check determines the actual SoH value of the traction battery, completely independent of the vehicle manufacturer. That value represents the State of Health (SoH), the true battery condition. The battery report based on that value forms the core product of Battery Quick Check GmbH. It is certified by TÜV Rheinland and thus highly trustworthy.
How the Battery Quick Check works
For the diagnostics of the battery condition, the on-board diagnostic system (OBD) with the OBD2 interface of a vehicle is used. Qualified workshop personnel or TÜV Rheinland experts use a vehicle diagnostic tool to read out all relevant data, including the battery's current, voltage and temperature. The battery data is then analyzed in the Battery Quick Check Cloud using an innovative battery analysis algorithm.
The result is an independent and precise status report on the traction battery – the Battery Quick Check Report.
